Seetxt is a lightweight text file and man page viewer for X windows. It maintains "document meta-data" for each user, allowing them to automatically keep bookmarks and highlights for read-only system files. It also has a "server mode" so that command line requests can be sent to a single running server rather than starting multiple instances. Other features include hypertext-style apropos (man page) searches, file monitoring, multi-level regular expression searching, a command history, and nice little toggle lights on the interface for the server and file monitor. There's also cross-application drag-n-drop support, and handy little features that allow you to view the output of shell commands and process the text buffer with an external command (sed, awk, grep, perl, etc.) Seetxt is POSIX compliant.
